my progres thus far on Wealthy Affiliate

Last Update: September 13, 2018

I have been on WA for about three weeks now. This is a completely new and daunting field for me and I am in over my head. At times, I feel like I am drowning and end my days feeling very frustrated and discouraged. The road ahead seems very long and daunting and I wonder what lies ahead.

I know that God is leading me down the path of online ministry and he never leads me where I am comfortable, that is how I know it is His idea.

So my patience is being tested and my abilities are being not understand.

I have not completed the last task in the previous lesson ( I am on lesson 10 now) as I simply do not understand and despite well-meaning community members, I cannot seem to get it right.

So I am forging on into the abyss and pray that God will sustain me and open my eyes of understanding. ( I could not upload an image to this post- wrong size image and I don't know how to change it. I tried for over 1 hour now).

I pray that the road ahead will get clearer and I can complete my training as I need to get started fulfilling the purpose for this website.

Aww, I understand how you feel. I'm struggling at times too. I can't believe I'm even shy online LOL but I know that you will find your way. Remember that there is no time limit, and that's what's so amazing about this. You can work and grow and learn on your own time. Keep up the great work :D

It is a learning process Charlene. We all have little bits here and there that don't drop into place straight away.

I often end up going back over previous lessons because either I have misunderstood or just not remembered.

Hi Charlene! We have all been there. You are approaching information overload.
Sometimes it helps to walk away for awhile if you've been trying to do the same thing over and over again. It will sink in and when you come back to it it will suddenly work. Or back up and re-read the previous lesson to make sure you didn't miss anything.
One way or another you WILL get through this, and there are always people available to help answer questions.
Best of luck.

The most important thing is to take it one day at a time. It takes time to learn something new. So be patient with yourself. One Google+, click home, then where it says "what's new with you?" you can type in your post. To add an image click on the image of the camera on the bottom left of the box.

thank you. Does this mean that I have to write my post in google plus and not on my website?

No write in in your website then use G+ to share it socially. Follow the training and it will be revealed. You didn't say where you are in the training?

Building your own traffic producing website.
I did not know how to write a post on my website and share it to Google plus account.
I did not know how to upload an image from my existing images (as I cant pay for images right now) , as it was not wide enough.
I am also confused as to why my google plus account has my name and surname and not my website ( all my personal info will be deleted if I edit the name.
I am sorry to bombard you with issues but I am eager to learn and sort it all out

On Googleplus you need to create a brand account. You will have your personal account plus the website account(brand). Go to G+ home page at the very bottom of the left side greyed out will be the words brands click it and follow instruction to create a brand. (your website brand name.)

When you have a brand setup add the new post by clciking on the pencil bottom right and putting in the url of the web post. G+ will find the link and image if one and show it here, add a few ore words to entice people to look at it.

You can get free images in WA, go to sitecontent and open a new post, type in a few words to get it editing then go to the icon for image, put in some text to search through the database all are free. load one into your content panel. You can use this area to do your content curation and add free images as you go.

See how you get on here then come back to me.

sorry, I am stuck by Brand set-up. I clicked on the word BRAND and a whole new scary world popped up. needless to say, I am more confused, how do I create a brand. How is this different from a google plus account?

The brand is a website you own under your profile. Its a sub-category for your profile.

Do not worry about social sharing at this point. Concentrate on putting content on your website. If you only have one post and a person comes to it through a link shared socially they have nowhere to go after reading it. Try to get at least 10 posts up before setting up a social network routine.

I have asked what part of the training are you on?
